    Chain guides on the Rune

    What guides are you running for 1x9 or 1x10?

    If anyone has used a Gamut P20 how is it? Thanks.

    1x10 with a mrp mini g2 sl. Works great, rubs the chain a bit in granny.

    yep, thats what I use. Its awesome; if you're considering the gamut then go for it. that roller bearing has kept running flawlessly despite being ridden through some pretty mucky conditions with little to no cleaning after. have never dropped chain



    now i did have another chain related issue but not related to the guide, but there was an easy fix:

    Because of the length of my chain, long cage der, tire size, etc... My chain would sometimes slap enough to get snagged and caught down between the tire and the chain stay.

    This didnt have anything to do with the gamut (the chain has STILL yet to drop off the ring).

    I just took a zip tie and diagonally bridged the chain stay and the seat stay (vertical) portion of the swingarm. It works like a charm; haven't had that problem since i had that idea

    wondering....did anyone else ever have that issue? i kind of think it came down to mix of drive train setup and tire choice

    I ran a Gamut P20 for a while - flawless and one of the lightest too. Highly recommended.

    Have FUN!

    Works great if you never crash! I had to lay my bike on it's side down a really steep and loose section on a recent ride- going pretty damn slow. On my next ride I noticed the lower plastic guide completely snapped off. I'm over MRP and its cheap-plastic garbage. Gamut or Straitline seem like the way to go.
